Two of Glee's executive producers have essentially confirmed that the series will be going back to Lima's McKinley High in Season 6.
Glee EPs Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk spoke with TVLine at the Critics' Choice TV Awards Thursday about the upcoming final season of the musical series, teasing where the final season will be set and the general theme.
"There will be a lot going on in Lima" in Season 6, Falchuk revealed, confirming the rumors.
The series had transferred to a New York-based show after the another grip of kids graduated from McKinley High in the middle of Season 5. However, Murphy teased that the show would be getting back to its roots in its final episodes.
"We're working on the last season now, and it really feels like it's getting back to its roots, which I love," he said. "I'm sort of reinvigorated about it. It's getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools... I think people will like it."
Murphy also admitted that he had "stepped away from Glee" last season in order to film the HBO film The Normal Heart. The movie did well at the Critics' Choice TV Awards, winning trophies for Best Movie and Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for Matt Bomer.
Glee Season 6 will be premiering at some point in the 2014-2015 TV season, though Fox has not yet announced a specific air date. While Fox left the show off of its fall schedule, it is assumed that it will be premiering in Spring 2015.
